I'm in! I was thinking that I needed to have something to keep going with after Valentine's Day. Even though the final WI day will be few days after the fact, I'm going to be thinking of this as a beginning of Spring Challenge and I created a lovely new ticker in its honor!

My goal is 231, which gets me to my first 10% loss. I weigh in on Sundays.

Sounds like a great challenge! I read this recently about the Spring season, " According to the Celtic tradition, which is based solely on daylight and the strength of the noon sun, spring begins in early February and continues until early May."

So, April, I agree- this sounds like a lovely spring challenge. Goodness knows that if this weathers keeps up in Colorado- it will continue to feel like Spring!

Kim, I have no doubt that you will tear it up during this challenge. I love seeing your weight drop on an almost daily basis!

I was thinking about your siggy... And I think that you will actually get to the moon and back, almost exactly. Here is how I see it: It's 238,857 miles to the moon. If you cut that many calories- you'll lose about 68 pounds (3,500 calories in a pound). So that takes you to the moon and back! Enjoy the journey!!
